Question about Dual Electronics XDM6350 Car CD/ MP3 Player
The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.
The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer.
Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.

First thing to try would be cleaning the contacts where the usb cable plugs in to your head unit. Something may have gotten stuck in there, e.g lint or dust. A little compressed air into the slot or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment can often be the easiest. Cheers, Dan

Tips for a great answer:
Sometimes, you might find that your computer does not read that the iPod is connected to the USB port, preventing the synchronization of new files.
There are several potential causes for this lack of hardware recognition and many steps can be taken to troubleshoot the causes.
Reset your iPod's internal software using the key combination appropriate for your model. Apple's support documentation details how to do this for each available model.
Install all iTunes software updates and restart your computer.
Connect your iPod directly to a USB port on the computer.
Do not attach through a keyboard port or USB hub.
These might not provide enough power to operate the iPod.
Connect the iPod to a secondary USB port.
If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB port might be damaged.
Connect the iPod using a secondary iPod USB cable.
If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB cable might be damaged and should be replaced.
Restore the iPod using a computer that can read it as a last resort. Connect the iPod to another computer, launch iTunes and select "Restore" from the iPod information screen.
This will erase all data and restore default settings.
Contact Apple support or visit an Apple store for further help if your iPod still cannot be seen. An advanced hardware issue might be present and a warranty hardware replacement might be indicated.
Hope this helps
